All Saints Cathedral - Review
Located in the heart of the city, the church stands out as one of the marvels of architecture and is visited by tourists from all over India and abroad. Even if you are not particularly a religious person, this church is bound to attract you with its serene beauty and charm. Founded in 1871 and consecrated in 1887, it is located in a large open space at the junction of the two major roads in the city, MG Marg and SN Marg; and is easily accessible from all parts of the city. The locals call it ‘Pathar Girja’ which means Church of Stones.
The beautiful and imposing structure of the church is visible from far, offering a complete treat to the eyes. Built in Gothic style of architecture, it is regarded as one of the best Anglican cathedrals found in India and is built with cream colored stones and the roof covered with red tiles.
The large hall of the church is spacious enough to accommodate 300 to 400 people. The high ceilings and the decorated walls of the hall attract you as you step inside. The intricate works and designs on the marble altar keeps you spell bound with its beauty. Another attraction in the church is the stained glass panels. One can only wonder at the glass and pillar works of the church, which retaintheir originality even after 125 years of construction. There are narrow aisles inside and two transepts at the north and south. During the hot summer months, the low windows of the church are covered with wet khuskhus mats to make the interior cool.
Surrounding the church is lush green grass and plants that enhance the beauty of the place. The lantern tower is another striking feature here. Visiting the church is sure to fill within you spiritual peace and a sense of joy.

All Saints Cathedral, Allahabad Reviews
It's not unusual to find Christian churches in India's cities - leftovers from the days when the British worshipped here, of course. This Cathedral is an enormous Gothic-style edifice, to which we'd been directed by our hosts, themselves of the minority Christian faith (Allahabad's population is 85 percent Hindu and 13 percent Muslim). Located in a large open space at a major crossroads, this now pollution-stained building with weeds growing from its upper parts was designed to accommodate up to 400 in Victorian times. The friendly guardian apologised for not allowing us inside; it has a small congregation these days and is now only open on Sundays - reminiscent of our own churches in Britain!
